Event description
Together, let's strive for a better match between the public sector and innovative GovTech startups!

About this Event

As a public manager, have you ever wanted to innovate in your administration and been discouraged by the complexity and the sometimes ambient pessimism?

As a startup, have you ever wanted to propose new services to the administration and been stopped by long decision cycles?

This event is for public managers, policy makers, jurists, public procurement experts and GovTech companies concerned about innovation in the public sector.

Let us see what we can we learn from each other !

The current challenges to better serve the citizens and the society are immense. Information technologies are one of the building blocks to tackle them and small innovative companies have energy, prototypes and solutions to offer.

However, both worlds have sometimes the uttermost difficulties to meet each other, because of their strong and apparently opposite constraints, like public procurement and long decision cycles on the one side, or fast pacing environments and war for talents on the other. At the same time, the public sector is there to last whereas startups may fail early because of a mismatch between their ideas and the real needs.

The current misunderstanding of the two worlds leads to suboptimal results and wasted energy on both sides, and bad perception by companies and citizens in a time of strong expectations.

We are partners towards a better world for everyone. Let's take the positive of both sides and find value in the difficulties! Administration's long time allows decisions to mature and taking ethics into account, whereas startups' energy and methods may fuel your projects.

How can we transform our difficulties into assets? How can the apparent contradictions be solved in an innovative and pragmatic way? How can we become stronger together and what solutions can we design to this end? What new mechanisms would help to foster impacting, ethical and lasting innovation in the public sector?

We will use our collective intelligence to design conditions for innovation to better integrate the public sector: what business models? What can small companies do to gain administrations's trust? What can small companies learn from administrations to better align their value propositions and ethics? How can the administration protect small companies and at the same time guarantee a sound competition?

How can we together be both creative and secure?

You are welcome to debate with us, colleagues and other companies through an innovative workshop!

Poppy is an innovative Gov Tech company, collaborating with public services since 2014. We believe in knowledge sharing, mutualisation, organisational agility and development of solutions close to the field. We collaborate openly with each stakeholder in the respect of everyone's contribution.
